Back down to the drivers side of the distributor. just to the right of the base of the distributor you will find it. right, as in facing the distributor from the front of the blazer. you can find a picture of it in the how to vortec intake section on helpwrench.com

Yes, GM didn't change many things from the year 1995-1996. Your 95 might even take 96 parts.

IS THEIR WATER IN THE OIL? CHECK THE PLUGS TO SEE IF THEIR WET.YOU MIGHT PUT SOME PLUGS IN IT IF WET TO SEE IF IT WILL RUN.THEN PUT SOME HEADGASKETS ON IT.BUT IN REALITY NEW MOTOR WOULD BE BEST.

What is a Vortec engine?


The "spider" injector is the problem. You're right that one of the injectors is stuck open, unfortunately it has to be replaced as an assembly. This a common problem on the Vortec V-6's. When you were checking the fuel pressure, the fuel was passing through the open injector, giving you a low reading. After replacing the injector assembly, be sure to change your oil before you start the engine. I'd be willing to be you have a pint or two of gasoline that has gotten into the crankcase. That injector unit will cost you around $350. It's not too hard to put in, just be careful.

My 1996 Gmc K2500 with a 7.4l is miss firing. runs good till it warms up, then the problem starts. I have no codes in the computer. new fuel filter, spark plugs, air filter


Very good chance that it's bad fuel injectors and/or fuel pressure regulator. Very common with the 96-2000 L29 motor (Vortec 7.4L)
Replace with better injectors, the OEM ones are NOT WORTH cleaning. Go to http://www.fullsizechevy.com/forums/general-discussion/technical-maintenance/213662-96-99-454-vortec-owners.html

Will not start.


The "spider" up under the plastic intake plenm, the poppets athe end of each of the plastic tubes that supply the fuel to the cylinders get carbon on them and cant spray fuel. to buy a new one at GM its $550.00 Gm is the oly place you should look for one no matter the price aftermarket "copies" are not the same and while you are in there change the fuel prssure regulator at the sam time they are bot a big problem with the vortec
Change the fuel filte also and then EVERY EVERY 15,000 mles and don't worry about the engine oil change that once every 4 or 5 years that is not nearly as important as the fuel filter nothing will happen just remember the fuel filter and forget oil changes don't worry about all that 3000 mile stuff.
